Disability Employment Services (DES) and the NDIS are both funded by the Federal Government to provide employment support services to people affected by illness, injury or disability. We specialise in supporting people with Autism to find and keep a job, including school leavers and students in years 10 to 12.

If you have an employment assessment at Centrelink you can request a referral to the Autism Association.  If you have an NDIS plan with employment supports just contact us and you will be able to speak to one of our experienced advisors.

If you are already in a job and you feel that your job security is at risk because your disability is affecting you at work? Our Work Assist Program is here to support you.

Work Assist assigns you a Specialist Employment Consultant for at least 6 months and up to 1 year to help you overcome the challenges that you are facing at work. If you feel like you could do with some help, then please do act by contacting us.

If you are an employer and already have an employee who has Autism, and who is facing some challenges at work at the moment, we will assign a Specialist Employment Consultant to work with you and your staff member to help all parties overcome the challenges that are presenting. Please contact us for more information.

It doesn’t matter if you feel you face some challenges moving from school to work or even if you’re not sure what you want to do, that’s OK, we can help with those as well.

Our school transition service is available to help you prepare for work while you are still at school, or to support your transition from school to the world of employment.

The Autism Association is committed to upholding the Australian Privacy Principles and the Privacy Act with regard to how we manage your personal information as well as in the way we tailor our services to meet your needs.
